Psalm 131

by
 Humility and submission.
Is there ambition in my heart?.
Search, gracious God, and see; Or do I act a haughty part? Lord, I appeal to thee.
I charge my thoughts, be humble still, And all my carriage mild, Content, my Father, with thy will, And quiet as a child.
The patient soul, the lowly mind, Shall have a large reward: Let saints in sorrow lie resigned, And trust a faithful Lord.
